I think it is important to always realize that although most of Latin America speaks Spanish- it is never the same. The few words of Spanish that I knew before I came to Honduras would be better described as Mexican. This seems especially true in terms of food. Churros in Mexican is sweet bread, in Honduran (and what I can tell Central America) it is the word for chips. Tacos in Mexican, are fresh tortillas with meat and veggies inside. In Honduran tacos are a rolled up fried tortilla with meat inside, cabbage and salsa on top. The picture above, that is in Honduran an enchilada. So often I wonder what words I learn in Honduran that might get me in trouble in another country.
